The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB), together with the Samagi Jana Sandhanaya, as the main Opposition of the country, have decided to go on a common journey and it would be an all-party, unified country-building programme in which the opposition parties will not cater to any deals such as sharing ministries, said Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa, speaking to the electorate assembly of Deraniyagala SJB Electorate Organiser Ranjith Polgampala yesterday (06).
The event was held under the patronage of the Opposition Leader and was attended by many people.
The Opposition Leader pointed out that the familiar and disgusting political culture must not be brought back and that the country should be built by re enabling a parliament committee system vested with executive power. Accordingly, an effective programme building the country can be backed via such a committee system instead of gaining ministries, Premadasa emphasised.
The SJB, therefore, will be extending its support to a common programme that drives the country towards prosperity, he added, reminding that Sri Lanka as a whole was thrown into a very vulnerable state due to a wrong decision take by the people at the 2019 Presidential Polls.
The Opposition Leader stressed that as of now, the 22 million people of the country are helpless due to the conduct of the unruly,arrogant and heartless government.
He further added that it takes more than five years to restore the country to the state it had in 2019 and the people shall not be fooled by lies that it can be restored within two-to-three months.
